A blowdown of the boiler is a routine operation necessary due to the increased concentration of Total Dissolved Solids - TDS - in the boiler during the steam production. The blowdown rate of a boiler depends on: steam consumption (steam used in the process and not returned as condensate to the boiler), concentration of impurities in the feed water, maximum allowable TDS in the boiler.
